US President Donald Trump has said he remains open to forging a new nuclear deal with Iran, as he confirmed Washington will go ahead with reimposing sanctions against Tehran.

US sanctions against Iran's automotive industry, as well as trade involving gold and other metals, went into effect on Monday after Trump withdrew from the Obama-era nuclear deal in May.

The May decision to withdraw from the Iran deal, officially dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), gave a 90-day wind-down period for some business activities, and a 120-day wind-down period for others.

Further roiling the trade debate is the falling value of the Chinese currency, which makes its exports cheaper around the world. Two Trump administration officials told reporters on a conference call that Trump remains open to communications with Beijing .

According to the official, Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran deal upheld his highest obligation: to protect the safety and security of the American people. Shortly after it was negotiated, Republicans in Congress tried, and narrowly failed, to pass a resolution formally disapproving of the executive agreement.

By dealing through Putin and not Trump, Iran can save face while it deals with the defeat dealt to it by Trump's withdrawal from the deal, and its own economic incompetence.

"Considering the dramatic consequences for US national security and foreign policy interests, the Trump administration should not be given free reign to plunge the United States into a confrontation with its closest allies and partners".

The mechanism stops European companies from complying with the USA sanctions unless they have authorization from the Commission.

The ministers said the Iran deal is "crucial for the security of Europe, the region and the entire world". We expect Iran to continue to fully implement all its nuclear commitments under the JCPOA. Calling it a "horrible, one-sided deal" that "threw a lifeline of cash to a murderous dictatorship", the White House statement also warned that the supposedly normative function of the JCPOA had failed even after the USA made most of its concessions up front.

US sanctions had been eased by the Obama administration under the terms of the landmark 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

They will also limit Iran's access to software and automotive sectors, while blocking its ability to buy commercial aircraft or trade in food and other goods, as well.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters Sunday that the administration is willing to consider a future without sanctions, but it would "require enormous change" from Iran. "If you have [good] relations with people of Iran, then the question is why the first round of sanctions you imposed were targeting planes?" he asked.

To this point, however, Tehran has been unimpressed with such overtures.

"I do not have any precondition if the USA administration is prepared today", Rouhani said on Monday. "United States hypocrisy knows no bounds".

"We deeply regret the re-imposition of sanctions by the United States", said European Union diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini in a statement jointly signed with the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany. Rouhani held a brief phone call with President Barack Obama in 2013 as the talks were getting underway, the first time presidents of the two countries had spoken directly since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
